By Paula Vogel
Directed by Katherine McGerr
Paula Vogel is a master of finding humor in life’s dark corners. The Baltimore Waltz, written as a kind of theatrical eulogy to her beloved brother who died of AIDS in 1988, is a satiric and at times whacky comedy that charts a tale of a schoolteacher named Anna who takes a wild, lust-filled, last grab at life trip abroad after contracting a (fictional) fatal malady. As she indulges in food and romance, her brother Carl embarks on an absurd pursuit for a possible cure inspired by the classic film The Third Man. Reality and fantasy intermingle in this daringly comedic and ultimately heart-stirring play about love, loss, and coping with grief.
